Beef Enchilada Recipe

Even "meat and potato" ranchers love to mix it up with fun meals.

Here's a delicious beef enchilada recipe you can put together tonight!

Beef Enchiladas

20 Tortillas (look for whole wheat or healthier versions if you prefer) and
4 cups of shredded cheese
(we prefer Colby Jack, but use what you love!)

This recipe can be halved.


* 2 lbs grass fed beef - ground beef
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 4 tblsp flour
* 2 tblsp chili powder
* 1 tsp coarse sea salt
* 2 tsp garlic powder or 2 garlic clove minced (you can even buy garlic already minced in the jar and avoid all the crushing and garlic smell on your fingers!)
* 1 tsp ground cumin
* 1/2 tsp rubbed sage
* 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) stewed tomatoes ( I like mine chunky)

In saucepan (I prefer cast iron pans) cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink, usually at medium heat.
There won't be any fat to drain if you use grass fed beef!
Add flour and seasonings; mix well.
Stir in tomatoes; bring to boil.
Then reduce your heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes.

Enchilada Sauce;

* 8 to 12 garlic cloves, minced
* 2/3 of a cup butter
* 1 cup flour
* 2 cans or 28 ounces beef broth (sometimes I add half water to back off on sodium)
* 2 cans (15 ounces) tomato sauce
* 2 to 4 tblsp chili powder
* 1 to 2 tsp ground cumin
* 1 to 2 tsp rubbed sage
* 1 tsp salt

Sauté garlic in butter until tender.
Stir in flour until blended.
Gradually stir in broth; bring to boil.
Stir in tomato sauce and seasonings; heat gently through.

Now, if we don't have time, we just load up our beef enchilada's with cheese, but if we have the time, we bake them as follows;

Pour about 3 cups sauce into un-greased 13-by-9 inch pan.

Spread about 1/4 cup beef mixture down center of each tortilla; top with 1 to 2 tablespoon cheese. Roll up tightly; place seam side, of the rolled enchilada, down in sauce in the pan.

Top all the enchiladas with the remaining sauce.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees 35 to 40 minutes.

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Mmmm, eat and enjoy!

We love this beef enchilada recipe with a simple lettuce salad.
